Barony Theatre - Plays and Film Society
The Barony Theatre, Borrowstoun Road, Bo'ness, one of the best community run theatres in Scotland. Also shows movies.
The Barony Players formed as a group in 1954. Their dream of having a theatre space of their very own was realised in 1964 when they acquired the old Borrowstoun Primary School on an annual lease basis. The Players worked tirelessly and transformed the old school into a small theatre, opening their doors in 1966 with a production of “The Amorous Prawn”. Although improvements to the theatre have taken place many of the original features are still present a testament to the dedication and hard work of the founder members. We now have a 25 year lease of the building from Falkirk Council. We are a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation and are run by our Board of Trustees on behalf of the members.
All the theatre tasks are carried out by the members who willingly volunteer their time to keep the theatre up and running. It is hard work and new members are always welcome, just come along on a Wednesday night after 7.30 pm, lend a hand, audition for an acting role, whatever your skills they will be valued .
Membership costs £30 a year for individuals and £65 a year for family membership. Once you have joined you will be granted access to the Members’ Area on the website. Membership fees can be paid online or by cash, cheque or payment card at the theatre on Wednesday evenings.
Alternatively, if you would like to make a donation towards the running of the theatre then you can do so securely online via Paypal.
